Alabama State University Genealogy Workshop: Overcoming the Challenges of African-American Research. (264 hits)

WHAT: A genealogy workshop sharing records that overcome the challenges of African-American research.
WHEN: March 11, 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
WHERE: ASU's Library - "The Levi Watkins Learning Center," in its Archives Room.

It is a daunting enough task to do the research to learn more about your family's roots and whom your ancestors may have been. However, if you are an African-American doing genealogical research on your family prior to 1870, you have discovered an array of issues and the lack of easily accessible records, which are unique to the American experience of the antebellum world and the diaspora that enveloped the black community.

That is why Alabama State University's Levi Watkins Learning Center and ASU's National Center for the Study of Civil Rights and African-American Culture is hosting a genealogy workshop with its focus on one topic: Useful Records in Overcoming the Challenges of African-American Genealogical Research.

ASU's archivist and expert genealogist, Frazine Taylor, will provide hands-on instructions on how to locate available resources, which are useful for researching African-American family records. Taylor will help guide you through the many essential records and the mixture of procedures that are essential to follow if you wish to be successful in your African-American family research. Genealogical research in any period of history has a basic set-format to follow and Taylor has mastered what it takes to find the records, which will help reunite you with long lost ancestors by overcoming the barriers of segregated records, slave census documents and probated wills.
